A BIG ‘THANK YOU’
From the bottom of my Heart (No pun intended)
Because of all your prayers, cards, phone calls, hospital visits, flowers house visits and a great list of friends in Lucerne Valley and my karaoke family, the seniors, and the roadrunners, I have almost fully recovered from my heart surgery. Three special people (of many) that stood by me daily is my husband Woodrow, my daughter Rebekah and my second mom and friend, Jo Richards. I LOVE YOU, and I’ll be there for all of you... always.

The sugar-free carrot cake was especially delicious, according to one very satisfied patron. Peter Day / The Leader
